History at the University of Strathclyde has a long tradition of the highest quality research in its field. Our historians focus on:
- Scotland and the world
- European and International History
- History of science, technology and medicine
- Oral history
Two of these themes are supported by leading centres. The Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare, run jointly with Glasgow Caledonian University, is supported by the Wellcome Trust and celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2014-2015. The Scottish Oral History Centre celebrates 25 years of excellence in oral history scholarship in 2020.
Our areas of research
Scotland & the world
We address topics ranging from religious and political past to cultural and economic history. Our historians are keen to help Scotland shape its future by understanding its past.
European and International History
Historians at Strathclyde research and teach various aspects of European and International History.
History of science, technology and medicine
We work with the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare, run jointly with Glasgow Caledonian University, investigating ways in which science, technology and medicine have come to shape our culture and society.
Home to the Scottish Oral History Centre, Strathclyde has been a leader in developing ambitious and relevant oral history projects for over two decades. Our research topics range from occupational health and disability to gang culture and genocide.
